Dr Amy Talbot

Clinical Director, Senior Clinical Psychologist & Board Approved Supervisor

Bio

Amy is a warm, compassionate and supportive Clinical Psychologist with over a decade of clinical experience and 8 years supervisory experience. Amy’s clinical work has mostly focused on supporting clients across the lifespan with managing eating and feeding concerns, anxiety (including situational mutism), obsessive compulsive and related concerns (including tics and bfrbs) and on supporting neurodivergent clients to manage mental health concerns. She is experienced in a range of clinical treatment modalities including cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), schema therapy, and family systems and attachment-based approaches.

Amy firmly believes that clinical supervision is a focused area of practice; just as working with specific client groups or within specific therapeutic modalities requires focused training and professional development, Amy has focused the last 5 years of her practice on her personal and professional development as a supervisor. Amy has had the privilege of supporting over 150 individual clinicians nationwide in supervision, coaching and mentoring, as well as providing supervision to multiple teams in community, non-government and educational settings. She has also taught in the psychology programs across 5 NSW tertiary education institutions and holds a concurrent position as a Senior Lecturer at the Australian College of Applied Professions, teaching and supervising across all 3 of their postgraduate psychology programs.

Amy enjoys supporting healthcare professionals at all levels of career development to enhance their clinical practice, developing themselves personally and professionally, so that they can practice sustainably in ways that are personally meaningful to them. Amy matches her supervisory style to the developmental needs and goals of the supervisee, blending self-reflective practice with directive teaching in her niche areas of clinical practice. She enjoys focusing on both skill development and reflecting on relational and process elements of therapy with her supervisees.

Amy is available for ad hoc supervision about a particular case or clinical issue in her areas of clinical expertise, as well as an ongoing pattern of regular supervision. Amy is available to provide both individual and group supervision. Amy also provides business coaching and supervision blended with business coaching for sole practitioners and group practice owners.
